Case of the Week: 3/3/06

County: Wayne
Age: 71

This client contacted us after receiving a hospital bill in the amount of $3000 for services that should have been covered under his Medicare Part B. I contacted the billing office of the hospital and explained that my client is covered under Medicare Part B and, therefore, the hospital must file a claim through Medicare. After gathering my client's Medicare information the hospital filed its claim. Medicare covered most of the balance. My client can be billed for only $450 for co-pays and deductibles.
